The Mill Office, located at the bottom of the Civil War hill, is receiving some TLC this week. Bob Muller is repairing the deck on the historic building. The building was once used as a warehouse to store barrels of finished flour and later was home to the Tom Prowse family. The Robert Hunter family sold the property to the United States Army Corps of Engineers in the late 1970s. The Army Corps of Engineers are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the mill office, mill house, and surrounding property.
Betty Irvine (Robuck) will turn 104 years old on February 25th! She spends her time in her Oakland home, playing with her kitty and listening to audio books. Betty grew up on what is now the Martinelli property and she painted the beautiful mural in the Knights Ferry Church. A few months ago, I was gifted a piece of her art work. She painted the view of my parent’s property (Martinelli property) from Cemetery Road. It is proudly displayed on my living room wall! Thank you, Betty!
